Can anyone describe these factory-installed options to me as they pertain to a 2006 cargo van?

Maintenance Group
Power Convenience Group
Auxiliary Heating Group

Maintenance group has "Assist" oil analysis and tells when the oil needs replacing
Power has electric windows, electric mirrors, electric door locks etc
Auxiliary heat has an extra diesel coolant heater you can power up to heat up faster in cool weather.

thanks for quick response.

Can you tell me more about this option?

"Auxiliary heat has an extra diesel coolant heater you can power up to heat up faster in cool weather".

Is there a button on the control panel with a timer that can be set prior to starting engine? Or, does it function only when engine is running?

Yes, you can press the red button15-30 min before starting the engine and the engine and cab will be warmer in 15-30 minutes, some have a 7 day timer, they blow out diesel smoke out of the front wheelwell.
More info can be found here by using the blue search button nearer the top

Post your VIN in the thread linked below (along with your Email address or (better) permission for sailquik to post the results) and sailquik will send you a PDF file of "what MB built into your Sprinter" ... so the "maintenance group" will get fractured down to the individual options, you'll see your Alternator size, etc etc.

compare and contrast...
